We Can Find Our Voice Through Writing


According to Okemini Otum who shared a video on his Instagram page, angry passengers who were billed to fly Arik Air into Lagos but were delayed for 6 hours due to an overbooked plane, rushed into the next Arik plane that arrived the airport and didn't care if it was their scheduled plane or not.

"There are three guidelines for composing a novel. Tragically, nobody recognizes what they are." I cherish sites like this one from Somerset Maugham. He portrays superbly the counter-intuitive, silly art of composing fiction.

As of late I was met by a written work blogger and promoter. She asked three inquiries which fascinated me. Initially, what was my composition procedure, then how basic were the names of characters and the third, would i say i was "panster" or "organizer" kind of author?

Handle hints a framework in my view and I didn't think I had one. For a long time, I composed just true to life: Articles, book parts and a reading material. All expounded on subjects like physiology, initiative, inclines in basic care, each requiring inflexible dependence on sources and exact wording. Since composing was plainly methodical: Point by point plots and broad research. In any case, when around ten years back, I changed to composing books, my written work was completely extraordinary. Uncomfortably in this way, since I had no diagram to depend on. In spite of the fact that there was broad research to be accomplished for each of the books, it was not at all like the way toward composing my exposition. Or maybe, altogether instinctive. In any case, as I contemplated these inquiries in the 'creator talk with,' I started to consider precisely how the story and its characters thought on fragile living creature and bones. In the past books and are as of now coming to fruition for the new one.

Names are basic in my free "framework". Without a name which fits my picture of the character, I can't expound on him or her. In this way, I don't attempt. I hold up until the name appears. Once in a while there is a considerable measure of holding up. The same with the title. The title is one of the initial phases in the development of my stories. They may change yet by and large just by including a sub-title. In contemplating the fourth in my medicinal fiction arrangement of books, another character has been in my mind for over a year. Morgan Gardner is eighteen years of age, a dull haired and uncouth school rookie. She is a creature empath-she recognizes what they say to each other and can converse with them. Evidently, Morgan will be a vital character in this next story I have yet to start.

Quite a while prior, an author companion and I were talking. Rebecca had distributed her first novel and had three more arranged. Two were finished compositions. When I asked when she would distribute them, she answered that both required broad revamping. She wanted to re-try her framework for each of the books. Following a few moments of hush, my companion grinned and said, "You are a pantster, aren't you?" At my obvious perplexity about her importance, she clarified, "You don't do diagrams, you compose from the seat of your jeans."

In fact.
